Property Description

Al Salam Camp is an idyllic family-run oasis on the West Bank of the Nile at Luxor, just a few kilometres from the Valley of the Kings and other world famous sites.

Whether you are road-weary traveller or a bushy-tailed adventurer seeking something a little different, Al Salam Camp is the perfect escape off the beaten track. Cross the Nile and step into a peaceful world free from the hassle of touts, taxi drivers and tour groups.
What is Al Salam Camp all about?

Then Kolokolo Bird said, with a mournful cry, 'Go to the banks of the great grey-green, greasy Nile, all set about with fever-trees, and find out.'
- adapted from Rudyard Kipling's 'Just So Stories'

Al Salam camp ensures the safety of its guests. Be welcome and free from worry.

- Free Wifi
- Hot & Cold showers, clean shared facilities
- Enjoy home cooked food from our family kitchen
- Cold Stella and fruit juices
- Evening campfires
- Smoking area
- Cool places to relax in the shade, play board-games, read, listen to music, or just chat
- Pick-up from Luxor train / bus station for 150 EP
- Pick-up from Airport for 250 EP

Be it land, sea or air, we can arrange almost any kind of transport or ride: Camels, horses, donkeys, bike and motorbike hire, hot-air balloon at sunrise or faluka at sunset. Just ask and we will make your dream a reality.

From time to time we arrange special activities at Al Salam, such as having musicians perform, workshops or small movie screenings. If a group of people has an activity they we like to enjoy at the camp, we are always interested to hear it and to try and make it so.

Our guests come from all over the world - no matter who you are, you are welcome.

We have eight comfortable huts built in traditional style and sited around a central courtyard where you can eat, relax and plan your adventures.

There are three types of hut available: private twin, private double and 4 person dorm.
All rooms have a ceiling fan and mosquito net, and there are plenty of blankets for the winter months (which are generally not too cold).

The shared bathroom facilities are clean, spacious and hot water is available.

Private huts and dorm huts are clean and tidy and free of pests. Mosquito netting is also provided above beds.

Bathroom facilities are shared (locks on showers and toilets), however because of the size and intimacy of the site, they are kept in pristine condition to ensure the comfort of our guests.

There is also room to pitch your tent or park your vehicle if you so desire.

We are located within a stones throw of the Nile on the West Bank in Luxor, near Ramlah village. It is a short ferry ride from the East bank and close to restaurants, cafes and the West bank Luxor shopping district. View House Rules

    Ahmed and his family have the best spot in Luxor. It’s nice and quiet, away from the hustle of the east bank. Great common area to meet other travellers and get to know Ahmed. Would recommend this place to anyone!!

    This is a great choice for someone looking for a spot outside the hustle and bustle of the city. Just a boat ride away from the city center and a bike ride away from Vally of the Kings. My partner and I really enjoyed this little hidden gem outside the tourist area. The owner is always around and willing to help with anything. You are welcome to eat there for breakfast, lunch and dinner; he makes killer omelets! Highly recommend this wonderful place!

    Al Salam Camp is a safe haven amidst palm trees right on the bank of the Nile. The ferry to East Bank is only 5LE pp each way, and the terminal is a 10 minute walk from the camp. I loved the chill atmosphere & great outdoors area. Ahmed will give you good conversation, great food & bike hire (both the latter pricier than local joints but very convenient). Ended up extending my stay to almost a full week, sad to leave this little paradise! Solo female traveler approved :)

    Ahmed was an incredible host. We were able to rent bikes from him and get great recommendations. He is a true family man who wants his guests to have the best experience. Great meals, good WiFi, and a very very laid back atmosphere.

    Great place to stay if you want to avoid the busy and noisy city of Luxor. This hostel is on the other side of the river and offers a quiet and cosy vibe. It is very easy to get to Luxor if you want to go -- 10-minute boat ride that hostel owner can arrange (50 EGP = 3 USD). The owner is very nice and welcoming. He arranged several boat rides for us and an incredible hot air ballooning experience. Also, the meals and beer are not included but were very good (hard to find alcohol in Egypt).

    Al Salam Camp was a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of Luxor. Located on the west side of the bank (15mins walk near the ferry) it is close to the public ferry and also any motorboats or taxis you may need. Our room was clean and had a mosquito net (definitely need this as it is near the Nile River) and the shared facilities were clean. Ahmed was a good host but he does charge high on eg bike hire and dinner but with negotiation he can help you. The kittens/cats were a plus!

    The guesthouse is well located on the West Bank, facilities are decent for the price of the rooms. The host is very nice and accommodating, but unfortunately charged us very high prices for food on site upon paying the final bill, and also tried to charge us almost double for taxi to airport. Kofta was tasty though! The rooms are clean but had mosquitoes, and I am fairly sure I had my entire arms bitten by bed bugs or fleas, however the owner swears he never had any in 10 years.
